BETA PHOTO: Cameo, 5.9+.

RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>


Climb through excellent black rock, working a cool stem up to a jug and a sinker pocket. From here, follow thoughtful face climbing through a bulge to the top of the wall.

This pitch has some great rock and unique movement, and is well worth doing. It's also the easiest route on the wall and as such makes for a nice warmup.


About 30 feet right of Tax Free $, below a ramp feature.


5 bolts + anchors.

The name stems from BJ making a "Cameo" appearance back into the new routing game. Actually we just told him to drill and would not let him back to the ground until the route was in:)

This is a surprisingly great route for the grade! It has some massive (no-hands) rests, as it is slab climb. But, the moves between the rests are indeed thoughtful, and really fun for 5.9 sandstone face moves. A great warm-up for Androids, and Tax Free $ (and the rest of the crag).
